Up to 1K children abused UK's 'worst ever' scandal

Up to 1K children abused UK's 'worst ever' scandal

Social workers reportedly knew of the abuse, which saw girls as young as 11 targeted, from the 1990s, but police took ten years to launch an investigation and the authorities failed to keep tabs on suspects and perpetrators from the South Asian community fearing "racism" accusations.

Mirror reporters spoke to 12 girls who accused more than 70 men of being involved in raping and exploiting girls in the town. Becky Watson was 13 years old and since her death it has been revealed through passages in her diary that she claimed she was a victim of the grooming gang. "If Becky's abuse had been properly investigated by the authorities more girls could have been saved from going through this hell". It also said authorities treated the children simply as prostitutes and therefore criminals.

The estimate of 1,000 potential victims calculated with the help of Professor Liz Kelly, from the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit at London Metropolitan University, who reviewed the Mirror's figures.

The problem is not limited to one city though.

Although the Mirror report does not mention the religion of the alleged abusers, if the Telford case corresponds to the Rotherham and Rochdale incidents as closely it appears to, the Asian men are likely Muslims.

Rotherham-style inquiry into allegations of abuse.

"However, I feel we must do everything possible to know and learn further from what happened in the period before Operation Chalice jailed seven men for vile crimes against children".

His brother Ahdel Ali, 27, was handed a 26-year sentence after the pair sexually abused, trafficked, prostituted or tried to prostitute four teenagers.

Lucy Lowe was only 16 when she was killed in a house fire alongside her mother Eileen and 17-year-old sister Sarah in 2000.

After she gave birth to his child, the man passed her to his friends so they could rape her.

Mehmood was jailed for the triple murder, but was never arrested or charged in connection with any child sex crimes over his sexual relationship with the underage girl, who became the mother of his child.

Her horrific death was then used as a warning to other girls.

She told the Sunday Mirror: 'I was scared my family would die like Lucy's.

Tory Lucy Allan addressed fellow politicians amid claims that up to 1,000 children could have been targeted in her constituency.

Some years later another girl died in mysterious circumstances after a vehicle crash.

"The girl, now 47, says she reported her abuse to the council and school but does not believe action was taken", Sommerlad noted.

"The Council, police and other partners' practice has changed dramatically, however I will welcome any further light that an independent inquiry can help shed on this vile crime and further improve practice here and the many other places in the United Kingdom where has and continues to happen".

Lawyer and child abuse crusader Dino Nocivelli said PC cops need to be held accountable.

A spokesperson for Telford and Wrekin Council said they were treating allegations of child abuse as a "top priority".
